Hungary Retains Numerus Clausus

August 24, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

At the meeting of the Hungarian Chamber last week, the Socialist Deputy Karl Peyer introduced a motion for the withdrawal of the numerus clausus.

Count Kuno Klebelsberg, the Minister for Education opposed the motion. The numerus clausus, he said, could not be withdrawn until the detached parts of Hungary were restored to her.

The Government Party voted against Deputy Peyer’s motion, which was defeated by an over helming majority.

The numerus clausus in Hungary thus remains in force “till the detached parts of Hungary are returned to her”.
